I had no idea the B&M still operated. i thought that was done years ago. they do a decent business with the market or so it seems.

Since NO ONE responded to my post, I'll just respond to myself. Oh, hi Trolley, yes the Hawaiian Chicken stand is still there serving the same old chicken. It's still as good as you imagined. The farmers market moved one block north (west?) so don't be alarmed. Great, have a good time!

Hawaiian Chicken vendor at the Montrose Farmers Markets

I'm back in town for a few days and was dreaming of going to the Montrose Farmers Market for some Hawaiian chicken. However, I'm staying in Venice and the drive to Montrose is a bit far. And I'm also not seeing much info on the chicken vendor. Their FB is gone. Are they still around??

what to do with russet potatoes

"My son does not like mashed either. He also could take or leave french fries. I don't know where I went wrong."

I ask myself the very same question each time I serve potatoes. When we go get burgers, sometimes he will opt for fruit instead of fries. Who is he? Some middle aged woman on weight watchers??

Good tip on the thin slice. I have a mandolin. I'll give that a whirl.

Cooking around allergies

How about some chicken? Spaghetti and chicken? I do have few thoughts. Make sure you clean all your pots, pans, cutting boards in a dishwasher or soapy hot water. Also read labels. Some ingredients are made on shared equipment with nuts, shellfish etc. This is particularly tricky bc the FDA doesn't require companies to label this info. The less cross contamination the better. Good Luck!

need a super light waffle recipe

I got this mickey mouse waffle iron and it yields something more like a pancake. I used a basic recipe and the cakes came out dense. I even separated the eggs and foamed the whites and folded them in at then end. what can i do to lighten this recipe??

Crazy method of mixing the batter for this cake..?

I'm not sure what's so crazy about this. I make chiffon cakes all the time that requires this method. I've done it even if it doesn't require it sometimes. is it the sugar part at the end that's throwing you off?

and what should you do?? you should make the cake and report back on how good it is!!!

undercooked chicken schnitzel, HELP!!

well, good news. i put them in the convection oven at 350F. reached 150 or so and took them out. they were puurfect. super juicy. some parts were even a bit on the dry side. ok, disaster averted.

Ever since, moving to 5400' elevation stove top cooking has been a huge challenge for me. something as simple as chicken cutlets seem to never come out right!!

Teach me how to use my convection oven

ok, sounds good. we just got a second warranty repair. did i mention this is our 2nd oven? this is brand new as of Jan 2014 and 2 repairs. it's still pretty sketchy as it will go on for the most part but sometimes it just does the clicking thing and won't ignite. good luck!! yes, keep me posted!!

Un-impressed with Vitamix

Ours is still running very well with weekly use. Nothing has ever broken. Have you ever considered that you got a defective one? Lemons can happen with anything that's a machine.

What frying oil to use

i'm sure you can but most brands don't specify how their oils are extracted on the label.

What frying oil to use

If you're concerned about oil and want to learn more as I am, this book call Extra Virginity was suggested to me by this restaurant owner. I haven't gotten around to it but it's on my kindle list. I too have a child now and became curious about the oils we use.

What frying oil to use

Avocado Oil -Chosen Foods. no hexane. Like coconut avocado is the only other oil that's extracted from the fruit. Not a seed. I also like rice bran oil. Light flavor. Most Japanese restaurants use rice bran oil. Peanut tastes ok, but the oil is extracted using chemicals or so I think. I also think peanut can impart a heavy flavor.

Baby-Friendly Cake Bakeries in Los Angeles

You can always try an Asian Bakery like Amandine or Phoenix Bakery. I don't know if the cakes are healthier but definitely less sugar and uses more fruit.

where is it at Fair Oaks and Green? I haven't been back to my beloved Pasadena in over a year :( But planning on a quick trip the week of T-day. Not that it matters where it is but wondering if it took place of Red, White and Bluezz old space.

I prefer plastic bagged pastries in Tokyo. Nothing worse than pastries that all tastes like cigarettes. When I back to to Tokyo to visit family, I forgot that everyone smokes in pastry shops.

Costco Food Finds - 4th Quarter 2014

yes, state of CO allows a chain to have one liquor store. So the Whole Foods in our town is the only store to have a wine shop and so on and so forth. There is a Costco with a wine shop and it's not far, but driving 40 min to a Costco with wine just feels too indulgent for me. But I do miss the wines. IN exchange my Costco has the best selection of organic products. My old Costco (Alhambra, CA) I'd walk out with TP, paper towels and some wine. Rarely any food.

yes, that's all they have at my Costco besides a local brand called Blue Parrot and prego. What I'm looking for is the Kirkland brand marinara. I think they stopped carrying it at my store. My store is in Superior, CO

Trader Joe's best whole bean coffee?

yeah, there's nothing you can do about that. My Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf goes away but then seems to come back periodically so you may be in luck. What state are you in? Costco is pretty regional as well. my old Costco was in Alhambra, CA. Barely any organic goods. Now I'm in Boulder, CO and it's organic this and that. Aside from the basic stuff the assortment is very different.
